    Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait Focuses on Decreasing Preventable Late Preterm Birth

    This three year project, from 2011 to 2013 is in partnership with March of Dimes; three Houston hospitals - Memorial Hermann Southwest Hospital, St. Joseph Medical Center, and The Woman’s Hospital of Texas; and the Harris County Hospital District.  72% of preterm births in Texas are late preterm births, or those between 34 and 36 weeks gestation; making this an important initiative to decrease the number one killer of newborns: premature birth.  The project’s essential elements involve the “5 P’s”: Partnerships, Providers, Patients, Public, and Performance Evaluation.  The project is being led by a Houston Advisory Board, made up of obstetricians, woman’s health nurses, neonatologists and public health professionals.

    Houston Project Goals:

    • Reduction of singleton late preterm birth rate by 12% by 2014 in the Healthy Babies are Worth the Wait sites
    • Reduction in elective inductions and cesarean sections conducted prior to 39 weeks gestation
    • Positive change in consumer knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding preterm birth and elective procedures
    • Positive change in provider knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors regarding elective procedures and the management of preterm birth
    • Increase patient entry  into pre-natal care in the first trimester
